Reuters develops real-time graphics and illustrations to show the magnitude of the COVID-19 outbreak

By Reuters Communications

Since late January, Reuters has been tracking the spread of the coronavirus outbreak throughout the world. The Reuters graphics team has illustrated the number of COVID-19 positive cases and deaths in every country, including a detailed analysis of the outbreak in the United States with a county-by-county view.

On March 13, Reuters first published its U.S. tracker and then on March 24, a searchable database and tracker was published to verify the number of coronavirus cases in the United States from a county level.

With data from state and local governments, health authorities and Reuters reporting, Reuters is delivering fast, reliable, consistent and accurate data to feed into its graphics and trackers at minimum twice a day, from our journalists around the world to bring readers trusted information. Reuters journalists are steadfastly analyzing data to confirm the veracity of the information, especially in the instances where there are inaccuracies or incomplete data.
